07 Gsx600 Problems
I just bought an 07 gsx600. 5times already the bike has cut out on me on the HWY doing about 100mph. It just looses all power. When I pull over to start it, the battery acts dead. So i bought a new 1, only for it to still cut out on me...Can someone please give me an idea of what this could be? the guy i bought it from has no clue of bikes n was scared of it so i kno he doesnt kno n i didnt buy it from a shop. Thanks for the help Motohouston

Could be the charging system is not working. That would mean the ignition is running off the battery and works fine until the battery goes dead.
Measure the battery voltage with the bike turned off, it should be above 12 volts. Then start it and measure again, it should be around 14 volts.
Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight.
Check your ground connection, the black battery cable, where it connects to the frame. Make there is no corrosion and that it is tight.
Check those things out and see what you find.

i have the exact same bike, did the same exact thing on bumpy roads.........................bypassed my kick stand kill switch..............fixed..............the kick stand has a habit of going down slighty (just enough to open the circuit on the switch) and kills the bike. if you decide to go down that route just get into the habit of giving the kick stand a lilttle nudge at lights and once in a while. you dont want that kick stand hit the ground when your hitting the twisties
